The Wider Curriculum
Throughout school, the emphasis is placed firmly upon maximising opportunities for every pupil so that each child accesses the National Curriculum at an appropriate level and that they have access to a much wider curriculum that meets their very individual needs.
Our wider curriculum reflects the diversity of needs of our pupils and is flexible so as to adapt to any changing needs of individuals. As a forward thinking school, we are always looking for ways to improve and extend our wider curriculum to ensure we meet the needs of our pupils. Our wider curriculum at present comprises of:
Inclusion with local mainstream primary schools, secondary schools and colleges.
Inclusion links with other special schools
College link courses
Developing life skills in the community
Learning for leisure e.g. outward bound courses, bowling, cinema, restaurant visits
Aesthetic and creative experiences e.g. performers, artists, shows, musicians
Residential school visits
